you got a tv near your kitchen, then pump up the volume because we're going to help you clear out your pantry and get the whole thing organized. >> something we both need to do. health and nutrition editor madeline bernstrom will help you stock your pantry with all the right staples. but first madeleine paid a visit to the home of a working wife and mom of twin boys. although her pantry was in pretty good shape, madeline still had some great tips. >> you have got a lot of great things in your pantry, but let's start with some things that
2:42 am
you've got some panko crumbs. another almost used panko crumbs and another one, unopened. here's one in the back. mostly done. consolidating these and keeping them in the same place let's you know what's there. this expires today. it doesn't mean it's not safe to eat, but use it soon and keep it in the front of the pantry so you'll use it. >> i always thought that the expiration date means i needed toss it. you're saying that's not the case? >> it's not true. flavor can be compromised, but you can reseason it as well. >> excellent to have some cereal on hand, but these are both open. >> i got to blame my twins for that one. >> okay. good idea taking your rice out of the box and putting in a bag, but how old is it and how do you cook it? before you throw away the package, cut out the package label with nutrition information as well as serving size and how to cook it. tape it right to the outside. >> makes a lot of sense. >> you feel good about this?
2:43 am
>> madeline. >> what if you have a big walk-in closet, there's basics for a nice pantry. it's not about a shop all and a bunker for all the things you see in a big box store. >> you hate to have spices in there forever, and people think they're fine. >> they really have. they have a really long shelf life. maybe a couple of years. one thing we do is consolidate. look at the old stuff. it's not that they go bad, but they have no taste or flavor. toss them. they're not doing anything. try and consolidate. italian seasonings or the french version, which is herb de provence. keep things together. use them more often. salt and pepper really last forever. the same thing with oil and vinegars. you are looking at oil and especially buy one that you use. unflavored like safflower and then flavored for olive oil. >> i love canned goods. i use them a lot. who doesn't? one of the things that i did not know is about the due dates. >> expiration dates. >> they can last longer than we
2:44 am
about two years. you can leave them a few months more. this has nothing to do with safety. best buy, use by, or best if used by, these are voluntarily things that companies do. there's no regulation. it's a guideline for optimal taste and flavor. to use them after that, you just have to reseason a little bit. cans can be good for tomato that are hardly good except for a month or two a year. >> what if you get -- sometimes you get them banged up. does it matter? >> a little ding now and then is not a problem. if you have a dent anywhere near the top where it's going to be sealed, that's where you can have bacterial contamination. just bring it back to the store, and they'll swap it out. >> zim zip locks are important to madeleine. >> who doesn't love a good zip lock? it saves space, and it keeps things fresher. freshness -- things get stale, you tend to toss them. when you take things out, your rice, beans, it can be anything, put them in a bag. also, the portion size and the cooking directions.
2:45 am
>> it sounds like a good idea. to put them in there, but you forget how to cook them. >> you can also, especially if you or your family is looking for things, you don't want to take everything out and then you don't know what are these things? you can just put them back in here. zip lock. then that keeps it -- >> chips and crackers, which is my favorite. >> any of these starches or grains, you can do the same thing. cereal varies. you have a big container out and put down the serving size so you know what's in it, but you can also do this by just keeping it in the original packaging. and get one of these clips. >> chip clip. >> you can use -- >> a clothes pin. >> madeline, thank you. >> madeline, looking fine. >> more of madeline's pantry tips, klg and hoda.com. >> then from the kitchen to the bedroom, how parents can find a place for romance right after this. >> yes.
